Ya, it is. I was just being sloppy about it and Yooperbrew had already listed out how to do that. I was just showing the bittering differences.

The late DME addition will also boost your hop utilization. It's a good move on your part (you will get a lighter color *and* can probably save some hops), but you will need to run this through some software. Beer Smith can handle the late malt addition.

With hops at $6/oz and Beer Smith at $20 to register, you'll cover the cost of software quickly.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...
